Upcoming Road Trip / Visit to San Diego

I’m headed to San Diego this weekend to visit my brother and his family. I haven’t been to San Diego for years. I’ve always enjoyed the city so I’m looking forward to my visit.

My brother and his wife are always wonderful hosts, but it’s been awhile since I’ve visited them. My visit is long over due much to my dismay. The last time I was @ their home was when they lived in Salinas which was almost 4 years ago. However, I’ve seen my brother and his family many times since then whenever they visited Meerie.

I want to take my brother and his family to dinner and thought we could try a vegan restaurant, but when my brother got a wind of it, he said, “No vegan for me.”  So I’ll have to save that for another time, like when I’m alone.  I knew it was taking a chance getting my family to try a vegan restaurant, with the exception of my sister-in-law, but I was hoping they would give it a shot. My family love their meat and i can’t say that I blame them - I love meat too, but have found as I get older, my digestive system can’t handle it all that well. So while I am not going to become a vegan, I would like to try a vegan restaurant one day.

I’ll be driving down to San Diego, about an 8-10 hour drive, which is fine and dandy, except for one small white-haired little old feisty lady.

Meerie is going to be my traveling companion.  While I love mom dearly, even more so now because of the understanding and growing compassion that I’ve developed due to my own path to aging, she remains my nemesis, my Achilles heel, my weak spot, my…well you get the point.  Simply put she drives me nuts when I spend too much time with her.  

So the thought of 8-10 hours in the small confines of my car with mom gives me hives.

Dude.

I think this will be one of the most challenging things I’ll have to face while on my sabbatical.

But I’m going to look at it from a positive spin.  Like maybe I’ll have some funny stories to share after the experience - I mean, there should be at least one funny thing that will come out of the road trip.  After all I’ll be on the road with Meerie for about 20 hours because there’s also the return road trip home.

As Brick from the television show, The Middle, would whisper to his stomach, “Road trip home.”

Sleep-In-Sunday!  Just woke up and decided one of the first things I would do is bestow upon my Tumblr world my wakey, or is that wacky, face :):):)

My plans for today?  Household chores and then finish reading the book for this Wednesday’s book club gathering + complete the scarf I’ve been knitting for my niece’s Christmas gift.
